Hello all! My water system is in limbo right now (switching to a nipple waterer). During the transition, they are getting their water from a five-gallon bucket. The little ones (2-3mos) perch on the rim and have plenty of water, but when the water level dropped the laying hens ended up without water for at least an afternoon and possibly a day and a half until I realized they couldn't reach the water in the bucket. Egg production dropped from 8-9 eggs/day to 2-3 eggs/day and has stayed there for the past three days. Naturally the water situation has been resolved, but now I'm wondering how long it will take for my flock to recover and egg production to return to normal. Does anyone know? Thanks!
